Cinema One Originals Marks It's 15 Years With Brave Cinematic Experiences and Will Run From November 7 to 17

8:25:00 PM

An interesting news in the entertainment industry as one of your favorite go-to films Cinema One Originals, on its fifteenth year, will loudly and proudly declare what it’s stood for all these years, originality in all its permutations, and challenging old and new audiences if they’re ready for the Cinema One Originals Experience—an experience that goes beyond cinema, beyond cinephilia, beyond entertainment.

All these years, the Cinema One Originals mandate has been to give filmmakers, first-timers and otherwise, a platform to fully express their visions. This year, eight original narrative features get P3 million worth of grant each. There are four first time filmmakers, three previous Cinema One Originals alumni, and one director making her second feature and her Cinema One Originals debut.

Diverse as the four first-time filmmakers’ visions are, they find common ground in the way they invert their genres, and subgenres, of choice: a bildungsroman, a noir, a gothic horror, and a resurrection rom-com.

J.E. Tiglao makes his feature debut with “Metamorphosis” which stars Gold Aceron, Iana Bernardez, Ivan Padilla, Ricky Davao, and Yayo Aguila in a coming-of-age drama about intersexuality that’s as wistful as it is provocative. Dustin Celestino reverses the wrong time/wrong place dynamics of noir with a little help from a comet in “Utopia,” a blackly comic riff on the genre starring Enzo Pineda, Joem Bascon, and Aaron Villaflor. Eve Baswel’s “Tia Madre” is a gothic horror featuring Cherie Gil and Jana Agoncillo in which a young girl starts to suspect her mother has been changed into something not quite herself and perhaps not quite human either. Nigel Santos’ “Yours Truly, Shirley” casts Regine Velasquez as a widow who believes a young pop star (Rayt Carreon) is the reincarnation of her late husband.

Returning to Cinema One Originals are Victor Villanueva and Kevin Dayrit, who made their feature film debuts with Cinema One Originals.

Victor’s resumes his fascination with the intertwining of rom-com tropes with supernatural tinges that made “My Paranormal Romance” a quirky treat with “Lucid”, in which Alessandra De Rossi plays a lucid dreamer whose waking life and dream life start to blur when she meets JM De Guzman. Kevin, whose “Catnip” was the multi-awarded darling of its year takes on vampirism, necrophilia, the drug wars and rom-coms in “O” which stars Anna Luna, Lauren Young, and Jasmine Curtis-Smith.

Giancarlo Abrahan whose second feature was the Best Picture-winning Cinema One Original “Paki” returns with “Sila Sila”, which stars Gio Gahol and Topper Fabregas and which he describes as an LGBT ghosting story and which finds him taking another look at the interstitial dynamics of yet another extended family, a group of friends nursing consensual emotional traumas.

Denise O Hara makes her Cinema One Originals debut and her second feature with “Tayo Muna Habang Hindi Pa Tayo” a rom-com inversion with JC Santos and Jane Oineza, about the underside of trauma that even the truest of loves have.

Cinema One Originals has been producing breakthrough films with thought-provoking contents for the Filipino audience for 15 years. This year’s celebration will be held in line with the 100th anniversary of the Philippine Cinema and the 25th anniversary of leading cable channel Cinema One.

Fresh, cool, vibrant, inclusive, brave, original. The 15th Cinema One Originals runs from November 7 to 17 at Trinoma, Glorietta, Ayala Manila Bay, Gateway, and Powerplant Makati. There will also be screenings at Vista Cinemas in Iloilo and Evia Lifestyle and in Cinema Centenario, Cinema ‘76, Black Maria, UP Cine Adarna, and FDCP Cinematheque Manila.

10:49:00 PM

What does "foolish" means? According to Meriam-Webster "foolish is defined as 'having or showing a lack of good sense, judgment, or discretion', so by the means of lack of good sense it only says that the movie is all about love without good judgment at all. For Angeline Quinto and Jake Cuenca, "Foolish Love" made them went all out with their characters to the point of getting foolish and invibe it.

Just When The Force Awakens At Gateway Cinema Traffic Hits Manila, Hard

7:42:00 AM

When The Force Awakens at Gateway Mall's cinema with the seventh installment of the Star Wars series, Manila got hit by heavy traffic... and it's hard. And Toto experienced that right before going to see the launching of this new cinema with an astonishing Dolby Atmos technology. It was just great that the Force was much stronger in making me watch the movie.

Dolby Atmos is not new to me because I have featured it in but what's interesting is that the place is much nearer. So for those who are wondering how does this Dolby Atmos differs, here are some of the facts and things they say about it.

9:30:00 AM

Just right before Holloween here's another story on the big screen that will let you feel terrified and jumped off your seats. It is the chilling and eerie setting that will definitely give you a spine tingling sensation with "Resureksyon".

"Resureksyon" is a horror-thriller movie that will definitely let you give a second look on places abroad that you'll be working. It is a story of a mom who leaves for abroad to look for greener pasture for her family and then something happens that one day, she was brought back to the country in a coffin and on it are markings with specific instruction.

8:19:00 PM

It is said that this will be the biggest romantic-comedy movie this season. The scent of romance with a whiff of humor will fill the early Christmas air this November. I thought it was only the cool breeze of the holiday season. This is an early Christmas gift of Star Cinema and Viva Films for all fans and movie goers, "WON'T LAST A DAY WITHOUT YOU" is starred by Sarah Geronimo, the Pop Star Princess and Gerald Anderson, the Primetime Drama Prince.

4:57:00 AM

Last September 28, 2011, after the surging winds and rain of Typhoon Pedring, we were able to attend the Press Conference of Vice Ganda’s newest and up-coming movie entitled PRAYBEYT BENJAMIN. The theme of the press conference was green and army.

It was a star studded press conference and also well formed cast by generation. This is what we have noticed there were the generation of the bachelor - Kean Cipriano and Carlos Agassi, the generation of bachelorette - Vice Ganda, the generation of young parents - Nikki Valdez and DJ Durano, the generation of matured parents - Malou De Guzman, and the last generation, the generation of the senior citizen – the honorable Director Eddie Garcia. I think Direk Wenn have created a cast of great actors of all generations to bring one heck of a good movie.

During the press conference there were many parts of the movie that were given emphasis. One of them is the acceptance issue not only in the gender issue but more precisely as an individual. There were also admission, like in the famous phrase “the truth shall set you free” and I think those who have admitted some events in their life surely set themselves free. So mainly the movie is not just laughs but it features pigments of reality, reality that is actually happening in our society.

As we all know Vice Ganda has become a very popular gay icon, from being a stand-up comedian up to becoming a product endorser, a host and a performer. Vice Ganda has been shining very bright and now it will shine much brighter with his latest upcoming movie “PRAYBEYT BEJAMIN”.

 In this movie Vice plays the role of Bejamin Santos whose family has a long tradition of serving in the military. In fact, the movie’s stunning opening traces the roots of the Santos’ military service, from the days of Lapu-lapu and the Katipunan, up to the current times.

Conflict ensues when Lolo Benjamin which was played by Eddie Garcia fins out that his grandson (Vice) cannot continue the tradition because he is gay.

But when Lolo Benjamin is captured by terrorists, the grandson enters the military and musters all his masculine strength to save his dear grandfather, and the rest of the war-torn country as well.

Helping Praybeyt Benjamin in his quest are the member of a misfit platoon played by, among others, Derek Ramsay, DJ Durano, Vandolph, Jimmy Santos, Eddie Garcia, Dennis Padilla, Carlos Agassi, malouDe Guzman, Tutti Caringal, Kean Cipriano and Nikki Valdez.

This movie is the result of Vice’s good collaboration with the blockbuster director Wenn Deramas.

Be thrilled and be awed by Vice Ganda when “PRAYBEYT BENJAMIN’ opens in theaters nationwide on Oct. 12!

Live with No Other Woman

7:58:00 PM

This is a movie about love, passion, deceit, and obsession but it doesn’t teach you to do these things but brings it to your attention that these are the present reality. The movie is just an eye opener for all of us that every decision that we make will eventually lead to something, every action that we do will have an effect in the future.

“No Other Woman” is a new movie from Star Cinema and Viva Films that portray about the life of three people getting involved in a complex relationship. A movie directed by Ruel S. Bayani and starred by the country’s most desirable actors and actresses, Anne Curtis, Derek Ramsay, and Cristine Reyes. According to them it is the most demanding, provocative and emotionally-charged roles of their careers.

Anne Curtis plays the part of Kara Zalderiaga, a young, beautiful carefree socialite who can and will get whatever she wants. She has had many boyfriends but has continuously been emotionally-detached to love. To Kara, life is all fun and in “love”, no stings attached. But deep in her core, she has been longing not just to be desired and admired but likewise appreciated and truly loved. Derek Ramsay plays the part of Ram Escler, a charming, dedicated furniture salesman husband driven by his ambition to prove himself to the world. To Ram, being a good husband that can provide the best life to his family is a lifelong goal. He is obsessed with the idea of living out of the shadows of his father-in-law and away from the image of his estranged father. Cristine Reyes plays the part of Charmaine Escaler, the beautiful “perfect” wife, calculating, prim and proper to a fault. Charmaine is concerned with image and takes her role as an ideal wife to heart. To Charmaine, she will let nothing and no one ruin the “perfection” she has created for her family.

It is indeed a very hard role for them because none of them are married. So portraying the character in the movie is something that needs to be learned.

Love, passion, deceit, obsession. “No Other Woman” will surely fire-up the big screen as it hits over 100 theaters nationwide on September 28, 2011!
